NOTE: The following steps involve creating, editing, renaming, and deleting files and folders. For more information about how to accomplish these tasks in Windows, see your Windows printed documentation or online Help.


  1. In the \Windows\System folder on your hard drive, rename the
    following files:
    indeov.drv
    Ir21_r.dll
    Ir32.dll
    Mciavi.drv

    reinstall MSB Earth.
  3. Restart Windows.
You should now be able to run MSB Ocean and/or MSB Earth successfully.

MORE INFORMATION

If the program still doesn't run, even after following the Additional
Troubleshooting Steps, your Windows Registry file may be damaged or
corrupt. To determine if the Registry is corrupted, do the following:


  1. In the Windows folder, locate the file named Reg.dat.
  2. Rename Reg.dat to Regdat.old.


    For more information about how to perform this task in Windows, see
    your Windows printed documentation or online Help.
  3. Restart Windows.
  4. Reinstall Video for Windows 1.1e.


    1. On the File menu in Program Manager, click
      Run.
    2. If you are using MSB Ocean, type the following in the Command
      Line
      box and click OK, where D is the drive letter of
      your CD-ROM drive:
      d:\vfw\setup.exe
      If you are using MSB Earth, type the following in the Command
      Line
      box and click OK, where D is the drive letter of your
      CD-ROM drive:
      d:\msbearth\setup16\vfw\setup.exe
      Follow the Setup instructions to complete installation.
  5. Reinstall MSB Ocean or MSB Earth, and then run the program.
If the program runs correctly, then the original Reg.dat file was
corrupted. To make sure all of your other Windows programs run
correctly, you should reinstall them. This registers the programs in
the newly created Reg.dat file. A corrupt Reg.dat file can adversely
affect the performance of all Windows applications.


For more information about rebuilding the Reg.dat file, please see the
following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
80393 How to Rebuild the Default Windows REG.DAT File


If MSB Ocean continues to produce an error message or hang, then your
Reg.dat file was not corrupt. You should delete the Reg.dat file
located in your Windows folder, rename Regdat.old back to Reg.dat, and
then exit and restart Windows to restore your original settings.
